Reviews and comments written for the Hawk bullet.
I have loaded Hawk bullets in calibers ranging from 0.264" to 0.375". We generally use these bullets in older cartridges such as the Mannlicher-Schoenauers and the old Mauser rounds. Since Hawk is a semi-custom manufacturer the customer has the opportunity to specify the jacket thickness used on the projectiles. When using the Hawk bullet, we (Tejas Cartridge Company, Inc.) generally recommend using jackets of 0.025" to 0.030" thickness for deer sized game when velocities are slow to moderate (<2500 fps). Across the board we have recieved no compliants and much praise with regards to the performance of these bullets. The accuracy and terminal ballistics make these projectiles our first choice for older rifle/cartridge combinations.

Small Company in Salem, NJ. I have used their .411 300 grain round nose bullet for my 405 Winchester in both .035, and .025 jacket thicknesses. On Whitetail the heavier jacket shoots through with little apparent expansion. The .025 jacket seems to be the better performer on medium sized game. Bullets are accurate, and a highly recommended alternative for the hard to find 405 winchester caliber.
